...and there will be a chance of me getting a parking space close to the start.

do they go forward if you're not racing?

No.

Most clocks tend to have a habit of going in the forward direction.  I have only seen one that goes backwards and it had the numbers in an anti-clockwise direction too.  In my experience racing clocks tend to go forward faster than other clocks, which is why I can never get that PB.

LOL

Best laugh I had, was a few years ago, my Dad and his partner totally forgot and complained to me on the Monday evening that all the tv programs were running an hour late. I have not let him forget it ever since.

Does this mean I don't have to change my car clock that never got put back last year?  See, I knew it would be a waste of time.

Well that must take some doing.  The clocks went forward but I accidentally got up an hour too early.  My bloody phone has out-clevered me by automatically adjusting itself... after I already put it forward an hour before I went to bed.

Arse!

I did the same thing last October Phil, but got up an hour later.  Not good.  Bloomin' technology.

I followed my own advice and did all my clocks ... bar one, the readout on the microwave. Because I can't find the instructions and it isn't intuitive.

Why does every clock and timepiece in the house have a different procedure for adjusting it?

I can never remember how to set the oven, always end up hunting for the instructions.

At least forward is the easy one to do for mechanical clocks. To go backawards, do you wind the chiming clock forward 11 hours, and deal with 11 hours and quarters being chimed, or do you stop it for an hour and promptly forget that you've stopped it?

I set 3 alarms this morning to avoid missing my 6am wake up call to race.... i ended up waking up at 5am and couldnt sleep another wink....  but now I'm still not sure what time i'm on!
